A majority of voters have a bad impression of Kamala Harris, according to a new Rasmussen poll published on Monday.
GOP voters are especially against the idea of Harris being qualified to be president.
Just 25% of GOP voters think Harris is qualified to be president, compared to 80% of Democrats and 36% of undecided voters.
Overall, 51% have an unfavorable opinion of Harris, with 43% severely disliking the vice president.
Also, 50% believe Harris is not qualified to become president, including 41% who report she is not qualified at all.
The survey discovered that 46% of potential voters have a favorable view of Harris, including 28% who see her in a very favorable way.
Female voters (at 48%) only have a slightly more favorable opinion of Harris than men (at 44%).
The VP got high ratings among people under 40 (64%), Black voters (62%) and voters earning over $200K per year (54%).
She was viewed unfavorably by voters aged 65 and over (55%), White voters (42%) and most middle-class voters.
Rasmussen reported that Harris’ numbers were under that of former VP Mike Pence’s numbers. In 2017, 63% of people overall said Pence was qualified to be president, with Harris only getting 51%.
